BTW Wirehead, I assumed you didnt make your choice by auditioning headphones at a store. If you did, buy from that store for Heaven's sake. If you decided on the basis of reviews or specs, Jeffl is correct that, at least the early, SR60's are/were uncomfortable. For not much more money the SR80 is more comfortable, and for a bit more the SR 125 is significantly better. I have no opinion about the Sennheisers, except they have always made good headphones and are always well reviewed.
Now, why on earth would someone "ding" me with a -2, -2 for answering Wirehead's question? I have seen questions like this answered many times with specific dealer recommendations and have myself recommended several other dealers I have dealt with.
If you have a problem, whoever you are, say it here in the open or send me an email.
Thank you Paulwp. I did in fact want leads on good dealers. Thank you for your comments. I have heard a friends' HD 600s but cannot justify the price - I'd rather buy new cables. As far as dealers go they all want $150 (Cdn) which, with taxes is almost double. I'm all for supporting my local dealer but not at the cost of being taken. Regards.
I had SR60s for many years (bought them $60 from music direct in Chicago) until finally one of the drivers gave up. By that time Grado had replaced the cable twice and I decided to toss them. I used them for running and they are better than anything that comes even with top of the line walkmans. Then, I got the sennheiser 500 (in the early days of the web for $50) and found them less loud but the bass is more accurate. Since then I got the 580s which now sell for $199 (audio advisor etc) and I use them with the entry level amp from Headroom. So, I agree with the previous post unless uour system is very basic do your ears a favor and look at the 125s at least.
